Getting Cancer Treatment? Start Here!
Let our team help you get through it. While receiving cancer treatments, you may be searching for different information than when you were first diagnosed. This list includes some of the commonly searched information, but you can always use the Search feature or use the drop down menus above to find what you need!
A good place to start is learning a little bit about the cancer you have been diagnosed with. This can help you better understand what is being recommended when you see oncology specialists. You will likely hear a whole new vocabulary of medical terms. You don't need to know it all- but knowing a little can go a long way. And don't ever be afraid to ask "what does that mean?" or "can you explain that again?" This is your health and care - the oncology team is there for you. Don't be afraid to ask about anything you are unsure of or struggling with.
